Is IPL Photofacials Good for Sun-Damaged Skin?

Lulmecca can reduce the effects of the sun and sun spots

The sun is shining, and it feels so good after the dreary days of winter. We all love getting outdoors and doing more when the sun shines; there is a reason for that.

The sun’s rays actually boost serotonin – the feel-good hormone. Beyond lifting our moods, the sun also affects us physically.

The sun's rays can help our bodies by producing vitamin D, and this can reduce the chances of developing osteoporosis and other bone diseases. But too much sun can also tend to age our skin more quickly. Too much exposure to the sun can cause something called photoaging. According to the Canadian Dermatology Association – photoaging is premature aging of the skin from overexposure to harmful UV rays. It causes wrinkles around the eyes and mouth and forehead frown lines. The skin can look dull and uneven, and spots may begin to appear on any parts of the body that have been exposed for a long time. It can also cause melanoma and rosacea.

That is why it is so important to wear good sunscreen any time you are outside; even if it doesn’t seem that sunny, the sun’s rays can affect your skin.

AlumierMD is medical-grade skincare and has several products for sun damage. They have two sunscreen products, Clear Shield Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 42 and Sheer Hydration Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40, that are excellent for protecting the skin.
